  • Cool Isla experience. Worth going for sure. Beautiful turtles, especially the loggerheads, greenbacks and even some albinos! (Save your money on food; they weren't hungry) Also, some terrestrial turtles to see (they were hungry).
  • They do good work here. The facilities could be kept up better especially cleaning the turtle ponds outside along the top edges. They were covered in bird droppings and that's where people touch the sides when looking into the ponds.
